DIXIE HIGH SCHOOL: 4
The Fairborn girls Tennis team wrapped up a tough week with a home match against Dixie on Thursday evening. Despite a stronger performance across the board by the girls, it wasn't quite enough to avoid dropping a 4-1 match to the Greyhounds.
For the second night in a row, the lone winner for the Skyhawks was McKayla Lyons, who rolled to a 6-2, 6-2 win.
Tiana Thomas played well but fell 3-6, 3-6 at #2 singles. Meanwhile at #1 singles, Rita Chien was defeated 2-6, 1-6 at #1 singles.
In doubles action, Amanda Wilson and Katelyn Byczkowski lost 2-6, 3-6 at #1 doubles. Caitlin Bowling and Melissa Le continued their improving play despite losing 2-6, 4-6.
"Its good to see McKayla getting on a winning roll. She has been working so hard to get back to where she was last year, and it looks like she's finally getting there. Tiana (Thomas) is playing the best tennis of her career, but she just keeps running up against strong opponents."
"Its been fun watching Melissa and Caitlin develop their games this season. At the beginning of the season most of their points were 1 or 2 shots at the most, and now they are having long rallies, and playing really well at the net."
Monday night Fairborn will honor their seniors prior to hosting West Carrollton in a GWOC South match at the Community Park courts.
